Six soldiers were killed in the city of Ismailia when gunmen launched an attack on soldiers sitting inside a pickup truck.
Three police officers were also killed when a car bomb exploded outside a state security building in southern Sinai, security officials have said that the cause of the bomb was a suicide bomber.
An attack also took place in a suburb of Cairo, when a rocket propelled grenade was fired at a state-owned television network, injuring two people according to security officials.
The latest string of attacks by militants comes a day after anti-government protesters took to the streets, leaving 53 dead.
